Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that can affect 5-10% of women and is usually diagnosed in your late teens or early twenties. PCOS is actually a secondary condition diagnosed to women who suffer PCO (Polycystic Ovaries) but also have one or more additional symptoms.

Not all women with PCOS have the same symptoms as it can affect women in different ways. Symptoms tend to start in adolescence but for some women they may not start until early or mid-twenties.

The most common symptoms of PCOS are;

  • Irregular periods
  • Reduced fertility issues
  • Excessive hair growth
  • Weight gain
  • Thinning hair
  • Oily skin and acne

PCOS is not a treatable condition but symptoms can be managed although we do recommend that you seek GP advice first.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal is a great way to manage excessive hair growth from PCOS.

Laser hair removal is suitable for all skin types including dark skin and can reduce the growth of hair from all areas including chest, shoulders, arms, back, face, abdomen and neck. It is important to remember however that regular treatments may be required to keep the hair growth at a minimum.

Depending on the size and amount of areas to be treated the time required can vary. Small areas for example take 10-15 minutes. There is no downtime post-treatment and the majority of patients will notice a reduction in hair growth over the course of treatment.

Chemical Skin Peel

Chemical skin peels are great for women who suffer with acne and acne scarring as a result of PCOS.

There are a variety of chemical skin peels available to help reduce the signs of acne and acne scarring. Once the most suitable peel is selected for you, your face will first be cleansed. The peel is applied and you may feel a slight tingling or warmth to your skin. Usually a peel is only on your skin for a few minutes before being neutralised and removed. A chemical skin peel works by removing dead skin cells resulting in new fresher skin.

Chemical Skin Peels range from 30-45 minutes and your downtime will vary on the strength of the peel that you have. You will usually be recommended to have a course of chemical peel treatments and your results will improve as you get further into treatment.

Our N-Lite treatment is a great laser treatment for reducing acne and acne scarring caused by PCOS.

N-Lite is a laser treatment which emits a yellow light laser to target the bacteria in the skin that causes the acne. The bacteria is destroyed which clears the acne and the treatment also boosts the skins ability to produce collagen which also helps to reduce the appearance of acne scarring.

You will be recommended a course of three N-Lite treatment sessions but those with more severe acne may need a longer course or regular treatment. Results usually are visible after your second treatment but these will improve over a course of 3 months after treatment. The majority of clear results will last for 10 months. The treatment is painless and there is no downtime.
